LeBron James unsurprised by illegal payment claims around 'corrupt' NCAA

LeBron James unsurprised by illegal payment claims around 'corrupt' NCAA”

This is not the first time a report has circulated saying James checked out schools in a city; a report in the fall said he and his wife checked out a school in Los Angeles. I'm not going to make a judgment there.

James' comments came days after Yahoo Sports reported that the FBI is investigating a number of college programs for paying a third party agent in exchange for commitments for prized recruits. "Not a distraction", James said Tuesday.

But according to a former Rivers associate, it's not far-fetched for the one-time Knicks guard to have interest in the team's coaching job if Jeff Hornacek, who has one year left on his contract, is let go after the season.

"To know the history of the game and seeing the guys that put up triple-doubles on a regular (basis) - from Jason Kidd to Magic Johnson to Oscar Robertson to Russell Westbrook, you can throw my name in there as well". I hate even thinking about that; I'd love to see Fultz get a chance to get right in Philly after what's been an insane rookie season. "Obviously, I have never been a part it, but I do know what five-star athletes bring to a campus".

An FBI probe discovered an alleged pay-for-play scandal in college basketball in which coaches would funnel money to players through shoe companies and then steer those same young men to agents and investment advisers. "We know that. I'm sorry".

James has won the NBA Championship three times and won finals MVP three times, and hopes to compete for more in years to come.

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are the latest athletes to speak out against the NCAA.

James compared the timing of the movie to Larry Bird and Magic Johnson entering the then-floundering National Basketball Association together, then to Michael Jordan entering the league. I just passed Larry Bird. Wow.

The Cavaliers' new-look roster got off to a flying start against Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder, but they have lost two of three since the All-Star break. So I think us, we have to kind of really figure that out, how we can do that.

James was a fan of comic superheroes growing up but never thought he would see a black superhero just as he never thought he would see a black president like Barack Obama. I'm cool with whatever I decide to do.

James' appreciation caused a commotion on social media as Sixers fans began dreaming of No. 23 in one of the team's jerseys. "Have you guys seen Blue Chips?"

"We're anxious about kids coming into the league early, but they're not ready, then out of the league because of that", James continued. But when the most famous basketball player on the planet, who didn't need the NCAA to make him into the player he became, speaks, the organization should listen.
